Summary

Jeremy Maclin returns as the unquestioned top target in the Chiefs passing attack. The Chiefs were in dire need of a top dog at the wide receiver position, and Maclin certainly fit the bill in 2015. He was targeted a team-high 124 times last season, and developed some nice chemistry with quarterback Alex Smith along the way. The Chiefs short passing game and their lack of another bona fide threat at the position will lead to Maclin continuing to receive plenty of attention from opposing defenders, but the potential emergence of second-year pro Chris Conley could take some of the weight off of Maclin's shoulders. The returning Jamaal Charles could further open things up for the passing attack, and the impressive Travis Kelce should continue to see the bulk of the targets that are not pointed in Maclin's direction. Bottom line, we can pencil Maclin in for similar production as last season, and view him as a solid Top 20 wide receiver. (May 20)

Chiefs | Receiver depth still unsettled (Wed Jun 22, 04:43 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs WRs Albert Wilson, Chris Conley, Rod Streater, De'Anthony Thomas and Tyreek Hill will all compete for playing time behind WR Jeremy Maclin. Head coach Andy Reid liked what he saw from Wilson and Conley during offseason workouts, though.

Our View: Travis Kelce is really the #2 receiver for the Chiefs, or perhaps 2B with Jamaal Charles as a 2A. The team could pass more with Justin Houston possibly sidelined for a good part of the season, but any wide receiver other than Maclin would only amount to the fourth option in a somewhat conservative passing game. Conley could be a deep threat and he's an athletic freak, so he's the one to watch in deep dynasty leagues.
